The Run you have always dreamed of is FINALLY here !!! We are excited to introduce to you "The 5 At Columns Drive." In these crazy times you have seen many virtual races but this 5 miler and 5K is a little different... This is VIRTUALLY REAL!!  Each participant will run the SAME course any date between July 1st and July 21st 2020. 

To make this a VIRTUALLY REAL road run we will be using the RaceJoy application that can be easily downloaded for free on your smartphone.  RaceJoy will allow you to submit your run directly to our results page. Submitting true elapsed times through RaceJoy will allow us to have official run results with Overall and Age Group winners and awards. Participants can run and submit results as many times as they want between July 1st and July 21st.  This will allow participants to improve so that their best time will count toward the final results.

The 5 miler course will be marked along the 5 mile out and back stretch of Columns Drive and the 5K course will be marked on the crushed gravel walking / running path that runs along the river to the Powers Ferry Unit parking lot and back. This virtually real race will give you the opportunity to race the familiar courses you train on. There will finally be an official KOM and QOM of Columns Drive and you can see how you stack up to the 1000s that run these courses weekly.

*** Race must be ran with the RaceJoy smartphone application to be included in official race results and eligible for awards *** Email with RACEJOY Application Download will be sent to each runner prior to July 1st***
